Jinele McIntire claims she was involved in an altercation with Sizemore after he invited her to his home on 22 June (10) to discuss child support payments for their two sons, according to legal documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
McIntire alleges the Saving Private Ryan star “punched me in the face and head repeatedly. My ear started bleeding. (He then) punched me in the stomach with such great force, it took my breath away”.
She also claims Sizemore “threw a long knife (it looked like a kitchen knife) on the floor of the bathroom.”
A judge granted the restraining order on 30 June (10) but a spokesperson for Sizemore has denied the allegations, branding them “100 per cent untrue”.
The rep tells TMZ.com, “(The account was) completely fabricated and made in the attempt to discredit Tom Sizemore… because (McIntire) thought Tom was plotting to take the children.”
McIntire filed suit against Sizemore in October (09), accusing the actor of leaving her to single-handedly raise their twins boys, who were born in 2005.
Sizemore has a growing list of legal woes – he was charged with spousal battery following his arrest for an alleged attack on a woman in August (09) and was found guilty of assaulting then-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss in 2003.
He was also arrested last year (09) on an outstanding warrant for drug charges.
